First thing that comes to mind when someone says loaded potato skins is YUM! Sometimes the prep work can be a little tedious which is why we love this potato skin recipe by Jamielyn. I also love that this Easy Potato Skins recipe cuts the potatoes a little different so they are smaller (almost bite sized) so I can have a couple without having the overstuffed feeling.
- 4 large baking potatoes (washed)
- 3 TB butter, melted
- 2 teaspoons of kosher salt
- 1 1/2- 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
- 7 slices bacon -cooked and crumbled (or 1/2 cup bacon bits)
Pre-heat oven to 400°. Cover a baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
Wash potatoes and then cut the ends of the potatoes off and discard. Next cut the rest of the potatoes into approximately 1/2 inch slices.
Brush both sides and edges of the potatoes with butter and sprinkle with salt. Place on the foil covered pan and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until lightly browned. Turn potatoes onto the opposite side after about 15 minutes, to brown the other side.
When potatoes are done, top with cheese, bacon and green onions. Continue baking for 3-5 minutes, or until the cheese in nice and bubbly.
These also taste great topped with a little sour cream.
